Description
Adventure is one of the oldest game genres around. Some of the greatest moments in gaming history that still endure in our memories happened in adventures. Unfortunately, many believe the genre is dying and adventures don't sell, in spite of resounding cases that prove the opposite. Indeed, we beg to differ: we think the Adventure genre not only has a lot of kick left, but it's among the few game genres that still has room for innovation and exciting possibilities.

We believe in great storytelling. We believe that hundreds of thousands of people around the world want games like this, with cerebral gameplay and strong narratives. Shooting, jumping, running or shielding a sword aren't requirements to make a game fun. We love games like that, of course, but we believe in diversity. There is a place for classic adventures, and most importantly: the world needs them.

Take a look at the collection and help us Greenlight any games that you like. This is going to be an eclectic but curated list: we're not aiming to collect every single adventure on Steam Greenlight but the most promising ones. We're mostly taking into account traditional or classic styles. For example, if it has too many action elements, it won't be listed.

Thank you, and we hope you enjoy the list!
